Article source: Athletics

Double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah of Great Britain was defeated into second place by American Garrett Heath in the men's international race at the Great Edinburgh Cross Country on Saturday (9).

Heat who crossed the line after 25 minutes 29 seconds defeated Farah in a sprint finish.

"It is disappointing to lose, but better to lose now than later in the year. I couldn't really sprint - it was very slippery," Farah told BBC sports after the race.

American Scott Fabul finished third in 25:38 with Hawkins (25:41) fourth and Millington (25:43) fifth. 

 “I didn’t expect it (to win). Mo is such a great runner. I just wanted to be out there and try to run with him and compete. I saw  my teammates Scott Fauble come up to next me with 800 to go and I could tell he was feeling good so I got excited and tried to move. I kept just waiting for Mo to kick past me in the homestretch as I could hear people shouting at him.” Said Heath.
